PRESTO® Carbon Fiber Performance Series

PRESTO® Performance Series carbon fiber bows have gained a loyal following among players and teachers alike. Combining modern, strong, state-of-the-art materials with traditional handcraft, these bows are as impressive and beautiful to look at as they are to play. Agile handling, arrow-straight tracking and full tonal power are hallmarks of these fine bows. Decidedly stunning in appearance due to the open weave carbon cloth, these bows are far better suited for severe performance conditions than wood bows, including pernambuco. And, as the world's supply of expensive pernambuco wood disappears, PRESTO® Performance Series bows deliver more performance for your dollar than any fine bow on the market today.

Nickel mounted, open weave back carbon-fiber finish.

    Great bow at a great price.

    I use this bow with an NS Design six string electric cello. The bow is light, responsive, lightning quick, produces good volume, is impervious to weather changes and is indestructible. The tone s not what pernambuco proponents are used to, and that seems to be the major complaint against carbon fiber bows, but anyone buying carbon fiber bows should be doing so for their PERFORMANCE, and not because of the tone they produce. It is a compromise. I have several bows. A snakewood baroque bow, a pernambuco bow, an ipe bow and this carbon fiber bow. Granted, none of those bows are the thousand dollar variety, but the carbon fiber bow performs better and is far more responsive than any of my other bows. As far as tone, I like my ipe bow more. I think this bow is a great value, but it's not suitable for all applications (though it may be, depending on your instrument). It is perfect for me, because I am an electric player, and in the electric world we are less dependent on the tone of wood and more dependent on the performance of the gear. Still, I have friends that use similar carbon fiber bows (Coda Bows) and they swear by them. Some of them even going as far as saying they will never use a pernambuco bow anymore. In closing, I think this is a great value and a great performing bow. You just need to find the right application for it. ... (See Full Review)

    Amazing Bow!

    I recieved my Presto audition bow in the mail and it is stunning, it only took 3 days for it to arrive. It fits in your hand perfect and the weight is evenly distributed. It's slimmer compared o other bows and is long. It has a good balance of sound and is weightless. I highly recommend this bow and if you are having worries wondering if it's a quality bow, it is you get your money's worth. ... (See Full Review)
